Families Minister Scott Fielding has announced a vacant provincially owned property will be redeveloped to provide more housing in Flin Flon. He says the province has issued a request for expressions of interest for options to be submitted for the province’s consideration.
The request is open to any organization or company interested in redeveloping the site at 4 Hemlock Drive. The government deferred previous redevelopment plans as part of a review into the value for money of several projects.
Fielding says this is a fresh start on a project that Flin Flon has been anticipating for some time now so they expect there will be significant interest in this opportunity. He adds they are looking for unique and innovative ideas that reflect the needs of the community, maximize the benefit of this property and improve access to housing for all Manitobans. Submissions are being accepted until July 26th.
